Cut or pre cut!
The Monterey County is home to many wonderful Christmas tree farms where you can choose and cut your own Christmas tree. If you’re just not that adventuress, you can purchase a pre cut tree from any number of reputable Christmas tree lots. No matter what you choose, you can find many options just a short drive away from Monterey, Seaside and Carmel.
A word of caution – the drought has greatly impacted some of the Christmas tree farms, so be sure to call them before you go and ask about tree health and selection.
Some Christmas tree farms and lots offer extras such as bouncy houses, hot cider, hay rides and more. Visit the Christmas tree farm links below to see which one will best meet your specific needs.
